Happily married with one kid. Chemical engineer, now studying statistics. Although I've always maintained a healthy level of fitness, I didn't pick up running until junior year at BYU. Now I live in Idaho, where I leave for work at 5am and don't get home until 5:40pm. I try to get a short run in before work and on a blue moon I do a little something else after work. Some might call that a weekend warrior, but I make an honest effort during the week as well. Say hello!

I've woken up without an alarm every day this week and then immediately gone to a run or walk. Today was no different. Got very wet in the rain. Still here in Hurricane. (7.34 in 1:04:45)

10 easy miles on an incline, on a treadmill at the CHRC. I think I'm starting to come down with something. My congestion keeps getting worse (10 in 1:20:12)
